if I could only take one knife, i'd take pic related - great blade, and the most comfortable handle I have ever used on a knife.

Thing is - pretty much any knife is multi purpose. The trick, is that the most important part when it comes to making the knife as functional as possible is not the blade (cough, tom brown tracker, cough), but the handle.

If you want your knife to be very functional, you need to be able to hold the knife in many ways, not just saber/hammer grip.

The blade just needs to be small enough - Mors suggests 4 fingers long (about 3-4 inches, depending on how fat your fingers are).

General consensus on a good "survival" knife is a blade ~4'' long, spear point, or drop point, usually scandi grind (full flat, and a reasonably high saber works too, but scandi is best for wood, and that will be the primary use of a survival knife - you can cut meat with anything).
Full tang (this includes hidden tang type knives as long as they are high quality and durable), with a very comfortable handle (can't stress this enough) with no silly finger grooves, guards, etc.

1/8'' thick (forget 1/4'' thick monsters), quality steel (O1, A2, 3V, even 1095 with a good heat treat, rarely stainless, or super steels like s35vn)

Looking for a good USB flashlight , sick of buying batteries and do not want to fuck with recharging stations. Just want to plug it into my cell phone charger and be done.
Whats the best?
15 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
I've got one of these, it's pretty great. Rechargeable batteries don't last that long but you can use regular single use ones in a pinch which is nice.
I would be equally annoyed if I had to gather my light, phone, ipad, gps, headset, and dildo from half a dozen USB chargers around the house. I charge all my devices in one place, so having a battery charger plugged in next to my USB chargers isn't an inconvenience.
I used an LD12 flashlight, it's small, powerful and uses 1 AA battery, I've spent 15$ on batteries in the last year and a half by only using these 2; https://www.usbcell.com/product/1
Keep one in my flashlight and one in my mouse. Capacity isn't amazing but you just plug the battery directly into any USB port and you're set. Dam convenient not having to use a cable/charger.

I work at North Face. All of the boots are absolute trash. Never buy from a meme outdoors company like North Face. The only decent thing about the company is its warranty.
Salomon x alp gtx. If its not raining probably indefinitly. If Im not wearing gaitors in the rain maybe 3 hours, but thats water running down my legs. Comfy af, tho
The gore tex membrane shouldn't let any water through unless it's damaged somehow. The outer material will of course get wet sooner or later.

Fuck me, at least I caught some nice bass this year. I need to move farther south.
Reddington anon?
You can fish for other things
Panfish are fun and easy, as are bass

Nah, I've been fly fishing since I was a young kid, haven't in quite a few years and wanted to catch a couple trout before season closed. Next year I guess, maybe I'll get a new setup in the mean time. I still have the one I got at a yard sale when I was 14. Not to sound like a snob or anything but I am over panfishing.

Usually a lot of places up north have good fall and winter walleye and perch.

I've been there a couple of times with friends.
If you're thinking about going in the summer you should go in early or late summer to avoid mosqito season.
You should also aim your trip pretty far north to get away from normal civilization.
Otherwise Sweden is great because of their "allemansrätten" law, which makes it possible to sleep almost wherever you want in the nature.
